TBEA-owned, Hong Kong-listed solar company Xinte Energy yesterday announced it had settled a legal dispute over a 99 MW wind farm in China and now intends to complete the project. Huaxia Financial Leasing in June launched an RMB600 million ($91.7 million) claim against Xinte for allegedly failing to perform its obligations in relation to the project and the defendant, in turn, pointed the finger at the project’s developer, Xuyi High Drive Wind Power. Xinte opened a claim against the developer for RMB130 million plus any costs it incurred from the Huaxia litigation. Xinte yesterday announced it had paid the leasing company RMB600 million to settle the dispute and acquire creditors’ rights in relation to the facility. The settlement will secure Xinte RMB22 million of annual lease interest income, the company stated.
